Thursday’s Theme …

I know, I know! It’s Friday! Stupid ‘delayed scheduling button’ didn’t work properly, (or more likely, I didn’t do it right!) 😀

So, ignore that it’s a day late please and enjoy some lovin’  x

Today’s Theme … VALENTINE. ❤ ❤ ❤

Just like Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and Halloween, I am not overly keen on the commercialisation that has taken over this ‘Day of Love’. (However… I AM in the retail business so would be lying if I said I didn’t welcome an excuse to self publicise.. lol)  What I DO like about Valentine’s Day is that it gives people (usually chaps, let’s be honest) a good reason to declare their feelings and go a bit squidgy and romantic.

Apparently over 6 million men propose on February 14th in America alone. Love-Heart-Ring

Having said that, I have a strong idea that it is the female of the species trawling Pinterest & Etsy for imaginative and unique ideas for their loved one and not popping into a store for flowers, chocolates and possibly sparkly bath bombs. 🙂 (Although, that’s nice too!)

There is still time to make some pretties to dot around and get the romantic vibes whirring, you never know, they may just inspire the least demonstrative of partners to go a bit Heathcliffe …

Just in case you have enough on your plate and need to buy, rather than make a gift or two this year, perhaps you’d like to help support an independent artist rather than a mass produced store…
